One of the most exhaustedly researched games I've ever played; you're an old timer looking for the "Lost Dutchman Mine". The game begins you with a scarce amount of gold to buy the items you'll need to not only survive in the desert, but for gold panning and you'll need that pick axe! Along the way, you'll encounter those other folks that'll run you out of the area with shotguns and pistols! Watch out! A poisonous snake can end it all or if you're lucky you can make it back into town to the doc for a cure. Good luck old timer - if you're ever gonna search the Superstition Mountains with luck - well, you get my drift.
EVERY TIME you play, the game changes everything; the map, supplies available and more.
There you are, found your way through the vast Superstition Mountains of Arizona. Only one idea remains fixed in your mind: Discovering the glamorous riches of the Lost Dutchman Mine. There had been many who followed the same path as you. Unfortunately (fortunately?) none accomplished so far. You maybe? Well ... This isn't going to be an easy task.
Lost Dutchman Mine begins in "Goldfield" town, just where you can find everything you need to be an "old-timer". Your status is indicated with three guidelines: Health, food and water. As you will be going through expeditions, sometimes for a week, you will need a good load of supplies from the Mercantile. Take your time and choose wisely, as you don't have a big bag to carry everything around. Saloon may be used to sleep, a few sips and maybe some gambling with "Dapper Dan." If you can suceed to find some gold, try Assay Office. Their exchange rates are fine, besides there is nowhere else in the middle of the desert to exchange your bag of ores with money. If you are more succesfull and could make a thousand bucks, head to Livery Stable for a reliable friend. Be careful exploring the desert. There are rattlers, bandits after your money, and indians trying to steal your burros (reliable friends).
There are different different modes that the game will put you in, which are equally basic and so fun (something basic is something fun says I). The game runs on real-time, and you need to do what you would need to do in a real expedition: get well equipped, be sure to check your supplies often and don't panic once you encounter danger. After all isn't it this very feature that makes a game addictive in the first place?
Midi music and a few sound effects are available if you run the game with DosBox. Graphics are not the best you will see around 89's but they sure keep you on focus. Select CGA or MCGA graphics at the beginning of the game if you dont want to be hypnotised and maybe hurt your eyes.
You start off with some cash, to buy supplies for your adventure to find the Lost Dutchman Mine. Looking for information on this game, I was rather surprised that there was such a place around the state of Arizona. Go figure? So where was I? Yes, you start off in town, and you have to buy supplies, such as mining equipment, weapons, food etc. You can make more money panning for gold in the rivers, being a bounty hunter etc.
Apparently there are donkeys to help you carry stuff, as you are only one mere man remember. This enables you to take more food. You can also find more food by going fishing in rivers and stuff.
There are always dangers when on a journey to find a goldmine - snakebites (you're gonna need a doctor), Indians, and other people with big guns that want to kill you dead.
This is a pretty unheard of game, and you can't really find any information on it! It rates pretty well as an adventure game, you should play it just to get it a bit more well known ;)
Well, in this game you going to find the Dutchman Mine. On this adventure you start in a town where you buy stuff like food and bullets, etc. Along the road you meet Indians, snakes, etc. The graphics are very very nice.
The game puts You in role of a gold miner looking for a legendary Lost Dutchman mine. This is based on a true story of a German immigrant that found gold in The Superstition mountains in Arizona. It was never found but with this game You may change the history. Now, help the poor guy in his search and try to stay alive during that time.
A rather interesting game from Magnetic Images taking place in the the golden when the goldrush was around. You have to start the game by raising a lot of funds to be able to succeed later in the game.
There are several ways you can do this like getting bounty rewards, poker games and much more. Your real mission consist of that you have to find a map to the lost dutchman mine. A somehow different but ok game which is recommended if you are not into only action or sport games.
A "one-hit wonder" from short-lived Magnetic Images is a solid game set in the Gold Rush of 1800s. As newcomer to Goldfield, you must find the map to legendary Lost Dutchman Mine, then claim it for fame and fortune. There are numerous ways to raise cash to fund your venture: you can pan for gold in the river, kill wanted criminals to claim bounty, and play poker in the saloon. A slow-paced game, but there are more than enough options to explore.
